Need internal antenna AC 7260 HMW


Hello. I appreciate any helpful comments. I purchased an Intel AC 7260 wireless adapter to use in a new build desktop computer. The sales person stated it will work in the motherboard PCIe 3.0 X 1 card slot. All that I received was the adapter itself - no instructions or hardware including no internal antenna. I need to find a source for a desktop internal antenna for my AC 7260 HMW. Thanks again.

If so, you have the OEM packaged, so you need your own antenna. These may be available on http://click.intel.com/ Click Intel to Purchase Computer Spare Parts and Technology Books

If you have the option of getting something else, you may want to consider doing so.
